Combo box selection

P: n/a
On various forms I have combo boxes with preloaded selections. I
click the down arrow to display the choices. On some of the boxes, if
I type the first letter of the selection (Lets say "C") then the first
"C" choice is highlighted and the drop down is still active, allowing
me to click the one I really want:
("Charlie" and not "Carl").
On other boxes, the first selection is hightlighted and the drop
down is set inactive leaving me with "Carl" in the box when I wanted to
pick "Charlie"
I have checked the properties of both boxes and can find no
difference. I'm using Access 2000
Thanks,
Hank Reed

Check again. Specifically the AutoExpand option.
